I would like to hear what factual info you have that supports that statement . What is OK educators compensation level?[/QUOTE]
In oklahoma: Vested teachers get around $36k, starting salary $29k. Teacher's aides are paid $800/mo. There are teachers who deserve more, there are teachers who need to be run completely out of the field. When our beloved sports heroes make millions, surely we could find a way to pay a teacher a decent salary. We can put a spacecraft on mars, for crying out loud, surely we can figure out a proper income for a teacher.
what do i view as proper? around $60k. That way you could actually attract the right people into the field.
We trust these people to educate our children. Why can't we trust ourselves to make sure they are the right people?
